Is any week complete if you haven’t had a batch of homemade tortilla chips? Definitely not! We love how easy it is to whip a batch up from leftover tortillas (or a whole new pack) from other meals.

This homemade tortilla chips recipe is the perfect recipe to make in small batches so you don’t have anything that goes to waste! But lets be honest, you’ll devour these before the thought of leftovers ever crosses your mind.
